Morning Blush Rose

Pink Colored Alba Roses

The Morning Blush rose is a very beautiful, semi-double flowering Alba rose.

It grows tall and upright from the center, with the canes flowing out and down like a fountain.

It can get quite large, so give it lots of room in the back of the garden, as a hedge, or as a focal point.

This once-bloomer produces a prolific Spring/Summer flush of blooms.

It's almost hard to describe the color of the blooms on this one, because they seem to vary on the bush, with some having more darker pink than others.

This is a very hardy Alba rose, and one that I grow myself, so I can give accurate information on how it performs for me. (zone 5)

I simply LOVE this rose!

I ordered it many years ago from Heirloom roses, it came as a (very small) cutting, but grew into a very large, and very stunning rose bush!

The semi double petals have a hint of yellow in the center, but the real beauty of the bloom is the contrast of the white with the darker edging on the petals.

The bush itself has long canes that flow down to the ground, in a most beautiful effect.

Some report more of a fragrance, but mine has only a slight fragrance to it.

It is a very hardy, and healthy growing rose that is never afflicted with blackspot or mildew.

The only thing I can find wrong with the beautiful Morning Blush rose, is that it blooms only once a season! But when it!

The blooming continues for a very long time, during early Summer, and I must confess, it's hard to stay away from it when it's in bloom!
